"From the acknowledged master interpreter of Lieder, this is a personal selection of more than 750 German art-song texts arranged with new English translations on facing pages, enabling the listener/reader to follow the texts line by line ... The translations have remained faithful to both the meaning and the tone of the texts and are written in a clear and graceful English. Organized for the easiest possible use (the songs appear in alphabetical order title by title, and are cross-indexed by title, composer and first line) this is a basic and essential book for all students, singers and lovers of Lieder, gathered and introduced by the man whose name is synonymous with the great repertory of German song."--Back cover
War requiem by Benjamin Britten( Recording )

94 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public awareness of Benjamin Britten's person and works advanced dramatically -- even explosively -- twice during his lifetime. The first time was in 1945, when his opera Peter Grimes was produced for the postwar reopening of Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. The second time followed the premier at Coventry and the subsequent series of performances all across Europe and North America of the War Requiem. Except to those provincials who thought that milky pastoral was the only idiom appropriate for an Englishman and who also found the young Britten too clever by half, the triumph of Peter Grimes marked not just the confirmation of a prodigious talent; it represented a moment of hope that, for the first time since the death of Henry Purcell in 1695, England had produced a composer of international stature. The impact the War Requiem made 17 years later was wider and deeper by far. Britten, approaching 50, had become an artist whose every new utterance was awaited with the most lively interest and the highest expectations. The War Requiem, moreover, was tied to a pair of events that were heavily freighted with history and emotion: the destruction of Coventry Cathedral in an air raid during the night of November 14-15, 1940, and its reconsecration more than 21 years later. Its first performance was planned as an international event with respect both to participants and audience. Most importantly, the War Requiem was a weighty and poignant statement on the subject of piercingly urgent concern to much of humankind. In the War Requiem, Britten drew on forces larger and more complex than in any previous work of his. The basic division of the performers is into two groups, reflecting the dual source of the words; the libretto stands in a relation of text (the Latin Missa pro defunctis) and commentary (the nine Owen poems). The Latin text is essentially the province of the large mixed chorus, but from this there is spillover in two opposite directions: the solo soprano represents a heightening of the choral singing at its most emotional, while the boys' choir represents liturgy at its most distanced. The mixed chorus and solo soprano are accompanied by the full orchestra; the boys' choir, whose sound should be distant, is supported by an organ. All this constitutes one group. The other group consists of the tenor and baritone soloists, whose province is the series of Owen songs; they are accompanied by the chamber orchestra. - Program notes / Michael Steinberg

Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

88 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer
